At less than six inches and just under 10 ounces, the Ruger .380 is considered by gun owners to be a great little pocket pistol.
So small, in fact, that you can sometimes get one onto an airplane.
Yep, the New York Daily News reports that a woman flew 938 miles from Orlando, Fla., to Newark, N.J., on Thursday with a loaded .380 in her purse. United flight 15 was airborne before she realized what she’d done—and airport screeners had missed. How the Daily News said it unfolded:
She didn’t tell anyone on the plane about the weapon during the flight, which left Florida at 8:19 a.m.
But when she landed at Newark Airport at 10:24, she immediately told a Port Authority police officer.
Yep, they demand we remove our shoes, accept doses of harmful radiation, and touch our private parts, but the TSA can’t catch a lawful citizen with a pocket gun, let alone a dangerous terrorist!
Can we stop paying these goons and make flying pleasant? I mean its not like we’re any safer with them!
